    Described by the Chicago Tribune as "a classic," The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt stands as one of the greatest biographies of our time. The publication of The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt on September 14th, 2001, marked the 100th anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt becoming president.

    Mike From Mesa says: "Very, very good, but very, very long."
    "Excellent book, excellent narrator."
    Overall

    This book covers TR from birth to assuming the Presidency. (Morris's "Theodore Rex" covers the presidency on). "Rise of TR" is a long, but rarely boring, owing much to the excellent narration of Mark Deakins. It should be appropriate for readers new to TR and to those not extremely well-versed in politics... Morris does a great job of helping you understand the gist even if the exact details why are not clear. The text reads more like a novel, rather than a dry biography, and in this sense is one of those audiobooks that you find excuses to get in the car and listen to. Well written, well read.

  • Drink, Play, F@#k: One Man's Search for Anything Across Ireland, Las Vegas, and Thailand

    What is a man to do after the tragic ending of his loving marriage and a nasty divorce? How does he rediscover the essence that makes him a man after years of being forced to attend ballets, eat vegan food, and participate in intimacy seminars? There is only one way: drink, play, f@#k.

    In Drink, Play, F@#k, Bob Sullivan, a jilted husband, sets off to explore the world, experience a meaningful connection with the divine, and rediscover his passion.

    David says: "Probably not the book you think it is..."
    "Good spoof"

    Story

    It's a guy's take spoof on Eat, Pray, Love, that has a few good bits of wisdom in it. It's fanciful, fiction, and funny. It's not meant to be profound; it's meant to make you smile. Dick Hill gives a talented performance.
